Dubai 21:30

Flew into Dubai just prior to sunset after a 14 hour flight.  We were able to see many of the high profile resort projects from above. It was quite impressive especially the Burj Dubai Tower which was off in the distance. ISI has two apartments for employee's stay while waiting for incoming or outgoing flights. Several of the group went to the City Centre mall for dinner where I purchased dinner from a Lebanase restaurant in the food court. Shoppers at the mall seemed to be from varied ethnic backgrounds with many families shopping late into the evening. Dubai reportedly has minimal oil reserves and has directed it's economy towards finance and tourism which is evident wherever you look. Flight out to Bagram tomorrow at 8am.
